Pro Audio Technology ”Called-In” by HGTV’s Cousins on Call TV Show for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom Remodel

The HGTV show details a surprise total renovation of the Odom’s home screening room

Huntington Beach, CA – January 25, 2013 – Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the leader in loudspeakers and DSP-programmable amplifier systems for residential properties, participated in the Prime Time HGTV show, Cousins on Call, which follows real-life cousins and best friends Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, as they transform outdated, dysfunctional homes to create dream living spaces.

In the episode, titled “Khloe and the Cousins Surprise Lamar”, Pro Audio Technology worked with Joseph Cali Systems Design of Santa Monica, CA to install a new state-of-the-art home cinema system. All new loudspeakers, subwoofers and power amplifiers with more than four-thousand-five-hundred watts of total power, were installed to create a no-holds-barred home theater surprise for the NBA star.

According to HGTV’s website:
“Khloe Kardashian Odom and Lamar Odom love their LA home. But they do have one room that they’ve never liked and rarely use. Plus it’s purple, the color of Lamar’s old team! So while Lamar is away on an NBA road trip, Khloe brings in the Cousins to transform unused space into a state-of-the-art theater. The couple wants a comfortable place to watch games or movies with their friends and family. So John and Anthony will design custom redwood accents to give the high-tech theater a warm and homey feel.”

“It was a real pleasure working with Anthony and John, the Cousins on Call crew and Joe Cali to create a home theater that meets the refined style demands of Khloe Kardashian Odom but that also achieves the visceral audio performance she knew Lamar would love,” said L. Paul Hales, Pro Audio Technology founder. “It took careful planning to get the right blend of aesthetics and performance, but there’s no doubt this theater will recreate the emotion and impact of movies, live sporting events, or whatever entertainment they’re enjoying.”

The episode, Khloe and the Cousins Surprise Lamar will air on HGTV at the following times:

Wednesday, January 23 – 8 p.m. and 3 a.m.
Wednesday, January 30 – 8:30 p.m. and 3:30 a.m.
Saturday, February 16 – 4:30 p.m.

SVS Announces Ultra Series Loudspeakers

The first full-range speakers to be accorded SVS’s lauded Ultra designation, this exciting new speaker lineup delivers stunning looks, unparalleled build quality, and a world-class audio experience.

Girard, OH – October 31, 2012 - SVS, a worldwide leader in high performance home audio products, proudly announces the launch of the Ultra series of full-range loudspeakers, designed to deliver uncompromised audio performance and boasting unsurpassed build quality and cost-no-object performance at a price that the average audio consumer can afford.

The SVS Ultra Series loudspeakers were designed for audio enthusiasts, by audio enthusiasts with over fifty years combined experience in the high-end audio arena, with a relentless passion for designing a stunning, acoustically impeccable loudspeaker that convincingly conveys the emotion of live music and home theater. The SVS Ultra series delivers a deep, detailed soundstage with incredible resolution, absolute transparency, and amazingly rich and articulated bass, outperforming speakers two and three times their price.

To achieve that goal, award-winning lead designer Mark Mason and his team began work on the lineup-which includes a gorgeous 45-inch tall upswept trapezoidal tower, a bookshelf speaker, center channel, and a truly unique and flexible surround speaker-by performing finite element analysis (FEA) on all of the proposed components in a sophisticated computer program that simulated the internal forces of each speaker and allowed for advanced engineering before the first prototype was ever built. As gorgeous as the speakers are, every angle, every surface, every dimension was tweaked with one ultimate goal in mind: pure acoustic perfection. Even the speaker grille design was subjected to this rigorous FEA to ensure the utmost in sonic transparency.

Once prototypes were constructed-with many parts being custom tooled exclusively for the Ultra series-further development was conducted at the world-renowned National Research Council (NRC) facilities in Ottawa, Canada, where each speaker underwent hours of anechoic chamber measurements and subsequent revisions to perfect the design. Final voicing was performed in the NRC’s famous IEC 268-13 standardized listening room, where Mason and SVS President Gary Yacoubian refined their performance in a real-world environment.

The result is a level of performance that even drastically more expensive loudspeakers cannot match. From top to bottom, the Ultra Tower that stands as the flagship of the lineup boasts top-grade components and high-end design features configured to deliver uncompromised, dynamic, distortion-free audio, with open, airy highs and the deep, tight, linear and powerful bass for which SVS is famous. Its unique SoundMatch 3.5-way crossover is designed so that only the top of the two 6.5-inch composite glass-fiber midrange drivers crosses over to the tweeter, while the bottom midrange driver works to ensure that off-axis performance is smooth and even, with a wider sweet spot and a more consistent sound across the entire room.

The Ultra Tower also employs SVS’s proprietary ForceFactor woofer array, with two 8-inch drivers horizontally opposed to eliminate cabinet vibrations, for reduced distortion and cleaner, tighter bass response. Since the Ultra Tower’s trapezoidal shape results in non-parallel surfaces-which serves to reduce standing waves within the cabinets themselves-each of the four UltraSonic woofers also fires in different directions into the room, reducing frequency response deviations throughout the listening space, and ensuring more consistent, powerful and accurate bass performance no matter where you sit.

Every other speaker in the Ultra series has been designed to complement the performance of the Ultra Tower, with flush-mounted drivers to reduce diffraction and improve on-axis high frequency response, along with rear-mounted bass reflex ports (on the Tower, Bookshelf, and Center) for phenomenal bass output and extension and minimal frequency response degradation.

The Ultra Center features vertically aligned midrange driver and tweeter for improved uniformity in horizontal dispersion and a consistent frequency response at all listening positions within a typical home theater environment, along with dual woofers for increased bass output and power handling. The Ultra Surround also promises to deliver an incredibly immersive and flexible multichannel sound experience. Designed with dual isolated crossovers for each tweeter and woofer, the Ultra Surround can operate in either bipole, dipole, or in SVS’s unique Duet configuration, which creates two separate speakers within one cabinet. In Duet mode, each speaker’s two discrete channels means that listeners can implement a true 7.1-channel surround sound experience using only two Ultra Surround speakers instead of the typical four.

“SVS has always been about delivering an unsurpassed audio value to people who, like us, are enthusiastic and passionate about great sound,” said Gary Yacoubian, SVS president and managing partner. “The Ultra series speakers also embody value because our team was meticulous in choosing build materials, design elements, and testing to achieve uncompromised performance, yet with pricing for a mainstream audio fan.”

SVS sells online, direct to the end user, and via select retailers. Pricing for the SVS Ultra Tower $1999 pair; SVS Ultra Bookshelf $999 pair; SVS Ultra Center $699; SVS Ultra Surround $1199 pair. The Ultra series speakers will begin shipping on November 20. The SVS Ultra series will be demonstrated this weekend during the Rocky Mountain Audiofest in Denver, Colorado.

Custom EQ Inside the Amplifier with Pro Audio Technology Programmable Modular Amplifiers (PMA)

An intuitive user interface with new predefined and parametric filters simplifies complex system calibration with the PMAs.

Huntington Beach, CA – September 25, 2012 – Pro Audio Technology (PRO), leader in professional-grade loudspeaker and digital amplifier technology, today announced enhancements to its Programmable Modular Amplifier (PMA) multichannel amplifier/processors. A complete family of new DSP filters for system acoustic optimization is now available via the PMA Control Panel™ interface – an enhancement to PRO’s PMA Manager™ amplifier control software.

Using PMA Manager Software, an installer can configure PMA amp/processors for all PRO loudspeaker systems via a single mouse-click by simply selecting the loudspeaker model from a list. The user is then able to optimize performance of the system in-situ via easy-to-use drop down menus of predefined filter selections identified using plain English – no knowledge of engineering terminology or advanced acoustical principles is required. These features greatly simplify the system setup process and reduce system calibration time.

Up to four predefined acoustic filters are available, per channel.

Examples of the predefined filters include:

• Perforated projection screen high-frequency compensation, selectable by screen brand and model
• Acoustic fabric high frequency compensation
• Acoustic boundary loading compensation
• Bass response contouring to fine-tune boundary compensation
• Treble response contouring to fine tune screen and fabric compensation
• High and low pass filters for deployment of distributed audio subwoofer/satellite systems

In lieu of the predefined filters, advanced installers can make use of up to eight customizable parametric filters – per channel – plus delay and gain adjustments to fine tune low-frequency in-room audio performance. Designed for subwoofer optimization, all the tools required to tame room-related standing wave modes are available right in the amplifier and are implemented via PMA Manager Software.

In addition to the full-set of customizable and predefined filters, PMA Manager features a built-in pink noise signal to aid in diagnosis of system wiring and design issues, and provides signal routing within the PMA amplifier making the deployment of complex, multi-way, multi-speaker installations simple and efficient.

“Installers don’t want to deploy stand-alone, multi-channel audio processors that add noise and use hard-to-understand terminology to get the best performance from their client’s systems,” said Paul Hales, Pro Audio Technology founder. “They are expensive, and needlessly complicate system wiring schemes. Our PMA amplifier/processors allow full optimization of audio systems right inside the amplifiers themselves. And best of all, PMA Manager™ with PMA Control Panel™, makes the process point-and-click easy.”

Pro Audio Technology’s Programmable Modular Amplifier is a 2U, four-channel design employing installer-programmable DSP with system calibration capabilities. PMA amplifier/processors are available in multiple configurations of 200, 450, or 1000 watts per channel. With high resolution DSP filtering, and proprietary PMA Manager Software, PMA amplifier/processors provide an intelligent, easy way to carry out complicated calibrations with minimal added cost and effort.

Pro Audio Technology Announces V-Series Speakers

V stands for value as Pro Audio Technology unveils its most affordable full-range speakers to date.

Indianapolis, IN – CEDIA Expo 2012 – September 5-8 – Sound Room 5 – Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the leader in professional-grade loudspeaker and digital amplifier technology, today announced the new V-Series loudspeakers, designed to deliver the high-impact dynamics for which PRO is known, but at a more affordable price than ever before. Both new models, the SCRS-210v full-range loudspeaker and LFC-12v subwoofer, feature enclosures only 6-inch deep, making deployment of high-output systems in small rooms possible.

The two professional 10” woofers employed in the SCRS-210v create an astonishingly high sound pressure of 102dB with one watt of input and combined, can handle 300W of continuous power. Offering even higher sensitivity, the 1” annular-diaphragm compression driver produces 110dB-per-watt and delivers highs that are both detailed and extended, resulting in an effortless presentation that is both dynamic and life-like in scale. Striking the perfect balance of power and accuracy, the SCRS-210v fills nearly any space with cinema quality sound and concert caliber music without industrial-grade pricing or space requirements.

For added low frequency support, the companion LFC-12v subwoofer features a high-output 12” professional-grade woofer with huge 4” voice coil. With sensitivity rated at 96dB driven with one watt, and power handling up to 700W, the LFC-12v has no problem producing the bone-jarring explosions or visceral slam found in today’s high quality recordings, all from an enclosure only 6” deep.

“For every large theater brought to us, there are at least six to eight small theater projects with smaller budgets but with the same high levels of expectation,” said Paul Hales, Pro Audio Technology founder. “Using intelligent engineering and careful selection of components, we designed the V-Series to deliver the maximum quantity of high resolution sound for the minimum dollar spent.”

At only 14” wide and 6” deep, the SCRS-210v and LFC-12v have been designed for placement inside a 2×6 stud wall or behind the viewing screen for a clean and unobtrusive installation.

As with all PRO products, DSP processing is a must. When paired with the companion PMA amplifier / processor, advanced digital EQ can be applied to compensate for speaker positions near boundaries or for the effects of placement behind viewing screens or fabric. As a system, the PRO V-Series loudspeakers and PMA amplifiers provide a level of sonic accuracy unparalleled at the price.

“Dealers now have an option for price-conscious applications without having to sacrifice the commercial cinema caliber dynamics and output levels we built our business on,” Hales said.

At only 14” wide and 6” deep, the SCRS-210v and LFC-12v have been designed for placement inside a 2×6 stud wall or behind the viewing screen for a clean and unobtrusive installation.

As with all PRO products, DSP processing is a must. When paired with the companion PMA amplifier / processor, advanced digital EQ can be applied to compensate for speaker positions near boundaries or for the effects of placement behind viewing screens or fabric. As a system, the PRO V-Series loudspeakers and PMA amplifiers provide a level of sonic accuracy unparalleled at the price.

“Dealers now have an option for price-conscious applications without having to sacrifice the commercial cinema caliber dynamics and output levels we built our business on,” Hales said.
